Phillies’ Hooters ball girl tradition continues with Sofia Kasuli on deck

Jim Nantz’s “a tradition unlike any other” spiel should have been reserved for what transpires at 601 Old Coachman Road in Clearwater, Fla., each March. It’s that magical place and that magical time of year when baseball, comedy and sex appeal all converge so perfectly, it’s as if the premise was invented by Roger Dorn’s wife herself. Yes, small-town Florida Hooters girls FINALLY get the attention they are unjustly deprived of on a daily basis by being ball girls at spring training baseball games.

“Lazy Ball Girl” (seen above) is my personal favorite, though I’m definitely in the minority on that opinion as “Live Ball Girl” (seen below) has seven million more views on YouTube:

Then there’s “Error-prone Ball Girl,” who has the same exact range in the field as Derek Jeter:

The breakout star of spring training thus far has been little-known Sofia Kasuli, who was originally spotted by Smitty of Barstoolsports.com. If you’re a Phillies fan, or just a general creep, it’s time to know your team and get a jump-start on who could be the next Phillies Hooters ball girl star this month. A quick Internet stalking session reveals Ms. Kasuli’s Instagram account, Twitter account (only 188 followers — help her out!), a tribute by something called Sex, Cigars and Booze magazine and this weird video below that may or may not be her (see below). Baseball! It’s back!
